During Saturday's third round at the Farmers Insurance Open, Michael Thompson struggled on the par fours on the Torrey Pines South course but was superb on the par fives.  He finished the round at two over par and is currently tied for 21st.

On the day, Michael was six over par on the par fours which included a double bogey on the forth hole when he drove the ball left into the native scrub brush and had to take an unplayable lie penalty.  But while he struggled on the par fours, he excelled on the par fives.  He was four under par on the four par fives after making two birdies and an eagle.  His eagle came on his final hole of the day when his second shot from 260 yards came to rest a mere four feet 10 inches from the hole.

For Sunday's final round, Michael will be playing with with Brendon De Jonge and Jamie Donaldson.  They tee off from the first hole at 8:50am PT.
